Description

Cell-phone

The cell-phone of setting required function in the picture that is provided with that the present invention relates to allow telephone user calling by the reference menu screen.More particularly, the minimal action that the present invention relates to allow the user to utilize and be arranged in the button on the telephone set is called over the cell-phone of used function once more.

Allow telephone user picture to be set to set required function be the conventional means of cell-phone through a plurality of.At present, the item number that will select on the picture is being set along with the increase of the number of the open function of user is increased, thereby is requiring with the dispersing mode cuit.This just makes the number that picture is set be increased to sizable degree and makes the user be difficult to find fast with required function is complementary picture is set.

More particularly, the user to correctly remember be under the jurisdiction of each specific function all the management numbers be and the difficulty.Therefore, common user's use and management number just when calling any one common function only.When calling the function of not memory, the user uses menu function.But this comes operations platoon to be listed in a plurality of buttons on the telephone set with regard to forcing the user according to required function.

In order to call the picture that is provided with of required function, the user can use any one in following two kinds of methods (1) and (2):

(1) directly calls the management number that is under the jurisdiction of required function; With

(2) by utilizing help function or menu function to call required function.

But, do not go the function remembered for the user, as previously mentioned, can not only utilize menu function and a plurality of buttons of inoperation call required function according to the required function user.In addition, in order to call identical function once more, the operator must all operate the picture that is provided with of searching required function for one time to above-mentioned button again.Though must so design picture frame layer and display packing so that as in the past described, further simplify the operation, never propose to be used for a kind of execution mode of record of the used function of recording user so that simplify method of calling to later identical function.

Stored in the past used function record listing function if I have studied in memory, whether the user can remove the above-mentioned loaded down with trivial details operation that is used for set-up function.And, if also having studied, I in menu screen, am invoked at the function of listing in the function record, whether the user can reach the necessary function picture fast and never call no picture in the past.

In addition, I have studied to have only as the user and have remembered when calling the method that is listed in function in the function record in menu screen, and the user just can be chosen in the menu screen so long as the required function of the function of using in the past.Specifically, suppose that management number that the user is under the jurisdiction of this function button by input calls the required function in the hundreds of difference in functionality.Then, because the user does not always correctly remember above-mentioned management number, so the user must repeat identical operations by hundreds of under worst case inferiorly.On the contrary, utilize the function record, one of required function in the function that the user should only select to occur on the main menu as function record and must be only to come the repetition identical operations corresponding to the minimum number that is listed in the function of function in writing down number.

Relate to technology of the present invention and be disclosed in for example Japan Patent unexposed 9-37348,10-23117,10-161829 is among 10-308975 and the 10-312261.

In order to understand the present invention better, the conventional cell-phone of utilization that specifically describes previous statement below calls two methods (1) and (2) that available required function is provided with picture.

Figure 1A represents the designated program corresponding to method (1).As shown, when cell-phone during at stand-by state (step S61), the cell-phone user handles the button that is arranged on the guidance panel so that a management number of required function is distributed in input.The function setting picture that occurs the expression calling function in response.The user determines then whether the function setting picture is the picture (step S62) of wishing.If the answer of step S62 is for being that the user is provided with above-mentioned functions (step S63) so; If answer is not for (denying step S63), the user presses stop key so, causes telephone set to return to stand-by state (step S61).

Figure 1B represents the designated program corresponding to method (2).As described, at the stand-by state (step S64) of cell-phone, the button on user's operating operation panel is so that call project menu (step S65).As a result, the project menu appears.The user then selects to be listed in one of required project in the main menu (step S65).In response, the sub-project menu that the layering of project menu subordinate occurs.Watch the user of sub-project menu to determine whether this sub-project menu comprises required function (step S66).If the answer of step S66 is for being that the user is provided with the function (step S67) of hope so; If the answer of step S66 is operated the rapid S64 of contragradience so for (not denying step S66).

Fig. 2 A and 2B represent the program of Figure 1A and 1B respectively in more detail, take to point out tone to select picture as an example.

But for the function that the user never remembers, according to the function of hope, the user must operate a plurality of buttons and only utilize menu function to call and wish function.In addition, in order to call identical functions once more, the operator must handle above-mentioned all buttons once more and search required function setting picture.With reference to figure 3 conventional method that calling function is provided with picture will be described more specifically.

As shown in Figure 3, cell-phone comprises button 51, and it is made up of function button that is arranged in function button district 52 and the digital keys that is arranged in digital keys district 53.For calling function is provided with picture, the telephone set operator presses the button " F " that is included in the function button district 52 and input manager number on the digital keys in being included in digital keys district 53 subsequently.For example, supposing that number " 3 " is distributed to reminds the sound selection function.Then, when the user pushes button " F " and when pushing button " 3 " subsequently (step S71, Fig. 2 A), be contained in to occur on the display 54 on the telephone set reminding sound that picture is set.Particularly, controller 43 (see figure 4)s read out in the required data of the above-mentioned picture of display 54 demonstrations and picture are appeared on the display 54 from memory 47 (see figure 4)s.Watch the user of picture to select required prompting sound (step S72, Fig. 2 A)." input " key that is included in the function button district 52 is used at each the selected project of input on the picture being set; When this key was pressed, next picture appeared on the display 54.

But in fact, the cell-phone user will to remember all management number of distributing to each specific function exactly be extremely difficult.This answer of step S62 that causes each Fig. 1 is not for the time, and the user must import another management number.For example, if 100 different functional items are arranged, the user just must repeat the S61 of Figure 1A and S62 100 times under worst case so.

As mentioned above, in order number to call required function by input manager, the user must remember all management number.As for the function of not remembeing, the user is repetitive operation button repeatedly then.

With reference to figure 4, expression realizes cell-phone of the present invention, comprises send/receive antenna 41.Antenna 41 is connected to aforesaid controller 43 through radio part 42.42 pairs of radio waves through antenna 41 of radio part are separated other conventional treatment of mediation.The speech of gained is through loud speaker 46 outputs.And other conventional treatment of mediation separated in 42 pairs of voice that enter through microphone 48 of radio.The radio wave of gained sends through antenna 41.

Controller 43 comprises the control circuit that is used to control the cell-phone various piece.Aforesaid memory 47 storages comprise each data each data corresponding to the specific function project.Controller 43 comprises a plurality of buttons corresponding to the button 51 of Fig. 3.Controller 43 is read the data that for example are used for the set-up function project and these data is presented at display 44 from memory 47 according to the operation of the guidance panel 45 that contains button 51.Display 44 is realized by for example LCD (LCD) so that show various information under the control of controller 44.

With reference to Figure 4 and 5 how memory function record in memory 47 of illustrated embodiment is described.Supposing n the function that memory 47 maximum storages are used in the past, is that " 10 " are example with n.As described in Figure 5, memory 47 has memory block 81, and the table 82 of listing the function record data is distributed in its subregion.Particularly, table 82 can be listed the table data that relates to n function.Up-to-date data all are input to the napex (input #1) of table 82 at every turn.When table 82 is filled n performance data, delete last data (input #n).If when input equals the function of any one function that table 82 lists, just store new function and delete old function simultaneously.Therefore n performance data is all inequality at every turn.

Will be with reference to the menu of figure 6 descriptions with the unique funcall program of illustrated embodiment.Menu relates to the functional item tabulation; Menu shown in Figure 6 is listed ten different functional items.Suppose when cell-phone at stand-by state, when the picture shown in the step S21 of Fig. 7 occurring, user push button " F ".Then, the tabulation of the functional item shown in the step S74 of Fig. 2 B appears on the display 44.Because display 44 can not show all functional items together, then the user comes option F0 to one of F9 by reliable display 44.

For rolling, be assumed to the picture shown in the step S75 of Fig. 2 B.Then, the button " * " that the user can be by utilizing Fig. 3 and " # " rolling function project sequentially on display 44, the functional item that causes wishing is lighted.When pushing button " * ", cause occurring next project (for example project F3 and F4 replace project F2 and F3), and when pushing button " # ", cause occurring previous project (for example project F1 and F2 replace project F2 and F3).Button " * " and " # " also are used for moving the highlighted part of representing selection function.For example, when project " prompting sound " is lighted on display 44 (step S75, Fig. 2 B), the user can by press " # " option on " prompting sound " " remind the sound volume).

For the function record, suppose user function of use F3 and F9 in the past.Then, the memory 47 memory function F3 of Fig. 4 and F9 are as the function record.As shown in Figure 6, when the user calls the function record F0 that is included in the menu, have only function F3 and F9 to appear on the display 44.That is to say, the user can calling function picture is set and not whole once more scanning F0 to F9, that is, and locating function F3 and F9.

Describe the more detailed operation of illustrated embodiment in detail with reference to figure 6.As shown, distribution menu function F0 is to F9.Supposing to use in the past reminds the user of sound selection function F3 and mail function F9 to wish to reuse mail function F9.So, the user can utilize following simple operations to call mail function F9.

When cell-phone was in stand-by state, as described in the step S21 of the Fig. 7 that will describe later on, the user pressed the button " F " of Fig. 3.As a result, select the project of picture function to occur, shown in the step S22 of the Fig. 7 that will describe later on like that.Because the function writing function is in the menu tip position, first appearance of function writing function and light and need not anyly roll so.When the user who watches menu presses " input " key of Fig. 3, then call the function record of listing function F3 and F9.As a result, Presentation Function F3 and F9.With this understanding, the user is in case push button once more " * " just can select mail function F9.When cell-phone utilizes conventional cell-phone by push button " * " during at stand-by state, also can call menu.But,, want the user of function of use F9 must push button continuously " * " 9 times because required function F9 is listed in menu bottom.

Though menu represented and be described as having only 10 functional item menus, in fact have more a plurality of functional items.On this meaning, the function writing function successfully is reduced to certain degree to the button operation number of times.

To describe then with reference to figure 6 to 8, sample calls the unique function record of illustrated embodiment.

At first, suppose that function record lists three kinds of different projects, promptly remind sound to set F3, data and time set F5 and mail F9.As shown in figure 21, when cell-phone picture shown in the step display S21 during at stand-by state, the user presses the button " F " (utilizing menu call) of Fig. 3 or " F " and " 0 " (the utilizing management number to call) that push button.Then the user determine the picture that obtains whether be function record picture (S12, Fig. 8).If the answer of step S12 is for being that the user presses the enter key of preliminary election so; If the answer of step S12 for not (not, step S12) so the user press the stop key of preliminary election.In the case, because three kinds of different projects listed in supposition function record, operate so from step S12 and enter step S14, skips steps S13.In the step S23 of Fig. 7, indicate in the technical routine of step S14 demonstration.In illustrated embodiment, at first wanting items displayed at step S14 is the last function of using.The user can press button " * " or " # " of Fig. 3, so that the picture rolling of step S23 is arrived the picture of required step S24 or the picture of step S25.When the function of wishing occurring, the user presses the preliminary election enter key and relates to the picture that is provided with of wishing function so that find.

As mentioned above, illustrated embodiment is stored the function record listing function that the user uses in the past.Therefore, wish to reuse the identical function user and only should scan the function of only in the function record, listing.This causes step S15 shown in Figure 8 to be repeated at most 10 times, and these 10 correspondences the function number of the maximum of listing in the function record.On the contrary, Chang Gui program forces the user to repeat the step S62 100 times of Figure 1A at most.

On the other hand, (deny that S13) operation turns back to step S11 so if in the function record, do not list function.

Fig. 9 represents to be used for the update routine at memory 47 memory functions record.As shown in the figure, memory 47 has storage area 91, and the subregion distributes to table 92 so that the memory function record data.Table 82 part that table 92 is different from Fig. 5 is that table 92 comprises and is used for the additional column of storing the numeration input by importing.Each functional item numeration increases one at every turn when the function of use project, original numeration is zero.That is to say that when the table 82 of Fig. 5 upgraded whole functional, the table 92 of Fig. 9 increased progressively numeration simply.

(10, in the case) during any one numeration of clauses and subclauses, update routine is with the numeration of successively decreasing n the clauses and subclauses of recombinating in proper order when renewal is listed in n in the table 92.If when equaling the group of entries of above-mentioned renewal clauses and subclauses and existing, then this n clauses and subclauses are recombinated so that the clauses and subclauses of upgrading are in above-mentioned group first of again.

In addition, suppose that table 92 overflows when when this registers new clauses and subclauses, and new clauses and subclauses numerations (" 1 ") overlap with the clauses and subclauses numerations (can not think " 1 ") that are listed in table 92 bottom.So, the existing clauses and subclauses of delete list 92.If the numeration of the existing clauses and subclauses of table 92 is " 2 " or more than 2, abandon new clauses and subclauses so.

Above update routine allows the user to call common function apace.In function record picture, the function title occurs with predetermined numeration in proper order together with the number of distributing to it.

Figure 10 represents the amending method of calling function record.As shown in the figure, when cell-phone during at stand-by state, the picture shown in the step S101 appears on the display, and the user presses the button " F " of Fig. 3, press then corresponding with in the digital keys of hoping function.As a result, the record of the function shown in S102 picture appears on the display.

Speech recognition is to call another possible fact of wishing function.Particularly, the user can wish the voice of function through the microphone 48 input representatives of Fig. 4,43 will discern voice and show this function in this case.Perhaps, the button " F " that Menu key can alternate figures 3, in the case, it then is corresponding to the numerical key of wishing function that the user will press Menu key.In addition, the user can form " project " and " sub-project " structure of the layering of describing with reference to Figure 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B.

In the step S22 of Fig. 7 and among the step S75 of Fig. 2 B, selected function is lighted.Perhaps, the function of selection can mark in insertion of brackets, headed by point or similar sign, or independent displaying.

In each step of S25, independent function is presented on the independent picture at the S23 of Fig. 7.Perhaps, shown in Fig. 2 B, functional item can be presented on the independent picture by different level, and perhaps all functional items can show together.

In a word, according to the present invention, the function that cell-phone is called with the form store electricity phone user of function record data.Record data allow the user to call identical functions by the key of pressing the picture indication.This has successfully reduced the number of times that the user should push button, and allows the user easily to get used to the operation of telephone set.

In addition, the user only should remember the straightforward procedure of calling function record data and only should operate phone after the calling function record data when watching the menu screen of appearance.Therefore the user needn't remember to distribute to all management numbers of each specific function.

Be subjected under the instruction disclosed by the invention, those skilled in the art may carry out various modifications and not break away from category of the present invention.
